“A model for some, a catalyst for others, Brian Webb Dance Company is undoubtedly a major community player that extends beyond dance into other realms such as visual arts, experimental theatre and interdisciplinary art. Creator, presenter, facilitator, collaborator, its artistic director contributes enormously to the development of dance.” 
– The Canada Council for the Arts

“Over the years, Brian Webb has danced in old work boots and bowler hats, in feather boas and black studded leather and, on numerous occasions, in his underwear. He’s rolled around on broken glass; he’s leapt across the stage in magic arcs of power and grace; he’s performed a duet with a 70-pound hip of raw beef, part of a riff on the nature of masculinity and machismo…. Since creating the Brian Webb Dance Company (BWDC), Webb – the small-town boy who, unlike Billy Elliot, never showed early inclinations to express himself through dance – has evolved into a choreographer and producer of international reputation, one who has won multiple awards…”
- Mairi MacLean, for Avenue Magazine

 “When they come to write the history of dance in Canada, Brian is going to loome large. Brian’s work is from the heart. Dance translates as his passion centre.”
 – Paula Citron, national dance writer & critic

 “It’s no secret that Brian is one of the most influential human beings in dance in Canada. He certainly has left his mark in the history books already.”
– Bobbi Westman, Executive Director, Alberta Dance Alliance
